The 2019 Grammys brought a return to the ceremony's imitable glamour of yesteryear: Cardi B made a dramatic arrival in Mugler, Kylie Jenner joined boyfriend Travis Scott in a polarising baby pink Balmain Couture number and Gaga went - gasp! - demure in a silver Celine gown.

The ceremony itself was filled with surprises and empowering messages and last night's red carpet at Los Angeles' Staples Center was among the most glamorous in recent memory.

For all the pictures from last night, see our gallery below:
